Summer Staff Members

Christopher Friend

Jr. CounselorNew Staff

Christopher, aka "Topher," has been a camper and was supposed to be a SALT (2020). This will be his first year on staff.

It's the 9th inning of the World Series, you're up to bat. What's your walk-up song?

Devil Went Down to Georgia

If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

Phineas from Phineas and Ferb because I want to ride a roller coaster to outer space. And he gets bonus points because I would be able to meet Perry.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

No; a hot dog is a taco and no one can tell me otherwise

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

I am most looking forward to just bonding and creating relationships with campers. If it's going to skills, or doing OA's (which I'm PUMPED for) or morning devotionals, I am ready to create relationships. I'm ready to just have a blast, I've been going to camp for years now and I truly believe with everything inch of my body that Camp Ridgecrest is the only place that a boy can truly be a boy and express themselves with their love for fun and adventure, while sharing a love for God with everyone else there. I am so ready for everything and can't wait to see everyone this summer!

What is your prayer for this summer?

My prayer for the summer is that every camper, councilor, director, etc. grows in their relationship with God. At camp its so easy to grow in your relationship because everyone shares that same love for our Creator. I also pray that every camper who feels a burden on their heart to ask questions about God and just life, that they ask it, and are able to grow! I also pray for safety and recovery from a long 2020 year and an open mind for how great summer 2021 is going to be!
